Rise of the Dark Realms Discussion

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Removal: Capsize , Bedevil , Hero's Downfall , Chaos Warp , Kolaghan's Command , Reality Shift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Vraska's Contempt , Rakdos Charm , Price of Fame , In Bolas's Clutches , Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , Fleshbag Marauder , Unstable Obelisk , Vandalblast , By Force , Shatterstorm , Hostage Taker , Yawgmoth's Vile Offering , Settle the Score , Dark Impostor , Hour of Glory , Sever the Bloodline , Silence the Believers , Spread the Sickness , Slave of Bolas , Electrodominance
Draw: (I would add Erebos once you're home) Patient Rebuilding , Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Notion Thief , Windfall , Mystical Tutor , Blue Sun's Zenith , Pull from Tomorrow , Stroke of Genius , Braingeyser , Mind Spring , Expansion / Explosion , Invoke the Firemind , Deliver Unto Evil , Augur of Bolas , Painful Truths , Fevered Visions , Search for Azcanta Flip, Fact or Fiction , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise , Tidings , Thassa, God of the Sea , Day's Undoing , Reforge the Soul , Standstill , Deep Analysis , Necrologia , Steady Progress , Tezzeret's Gambit , Oath of Jace

Yo Ruggs, here are a suggested cards to remove from you deck open up space.
Graveyard Fetching/Recursion - Competes for cards slots that support the tribal control theme. Besides Craterhoof Behemoth , I dont see any creature worth two cards for throwing it into your graveyard and then recurring it onto the battlefield. Animate Dead is good because you can target you opponent's graveyards - perfect for your discard theme.
- Buried Alive -> Vanquisher's Banner
- Entomb -> Herald's Horn
- Unearth -> Kindred Summons
- Entreat the Dead -> Rise of the Dark Realms Use elf ramp bring all those discarded creatures back into play under your control.
Other swap options include:
- Deathreap Ritual -> Skullclamp . The ritual conditionally yields one draw/end step. It's not bad, but the clamp will can explosively refill your hand for with more discard shenanigans
- Nature's Claim - > Beast Within . More flexibility on target selection.
- Deathsprout -> Silence the Believers , Vraska's Contempt , or Toxic Deluge . Your deck is missing alternative removal tricks, which I think is important. Indestructible is pretty common.
Thats what I got for now.

Color fixing in five colors is difficult. I'd recommend Mana Confluence and City of Brass for your deck, maybe even Prismatic Omen or Celestial Dawn , a pet card of mine for fixing colors. As for a win condition, if you're not planning on going beats with your commander, there's not a ton of payoff in the deck right now after everyone's permanents are gone but yours. I understand that salt is a prerequisite for this deck but if there's something that bothers players more than boardwipe tribal, it's being forced to sit through multiple turn rotations where you don't win from your advantage. Might recommend more x finishers like Torment of Hailfire or something like Rise of the Dark Realms . Last thought urborg/ coffers is extremely ambitious in five colors, recommend Crop Rotation and even Tempt with Discovery

Chainer's game plan should be something like... Ramp > Control > Reanimate.
Focus on filling and stealing from your opponents' graveyards and protecting Chainer.
Stax: Honestly, I would avoid hard stax. It encourages your opponents to hate you and escalate their power-level.
What this deck really needs is ramp: 38-40 lands and 12-16 cards like Bubbling Muck , Charcoal Diamond , Heartless Summoning , Burnished Hart , Coalition Relic , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Magus of the Coffers , Gauntlet of Power , Nirkana Revenant , etc. Also Phyrexian Tower .
...If you want to lean into stax... here's a list for evil people :)

I’ve gotten it running pretty smooth but I’m looking to increase its ability to win. I own cards like Beacon of Unrest and Rise of the Dark Realms but I’m to close to this deck to decide if it’s worth cutting what I have. Any suggestions?

Rise of the Dark Realms is three more mana tho, and now and then Command the Dreadhorde can pick one or two planeswalkers which is great value. And since you can not always win inmediately the turn you use either of those, Command the Dreadhorde makes easier for you to leave some mana open for interaction if needed.
With this strategy, Im not so sure about running Merciless Eviction or Hallowed Burial since you want to use Command or Rise after a boardwipe. Merciless is probably still worth just for the flexibility, but Austere Command is probably enough for that matter.

Oh the puns are real in that comment haha!
Good to know that my thought process was on the money thinking of the LabMan and yeah Jace would be good too (I have one which means no need to buy more cards).
when you say "they could kill me" I assume you mean by means of me milling myself instead? or do you mean that having such a large amount of draw would put a huge target on me for my playgroup to go after? Sorry haha was just trying to work out if your suggesting the Notion Thief combo is a valid tactic?
Yeah, I completely agree - that's a brilliant idea. It seems to be a much more stable way of winning as opposed to something like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to recycle my cards to keep milling. Why not just mill myself once the option presents itself - milling 92 cards is much easier than 276 haha!
Interesting concept being able to bring back my creatures from the graveyard like that.. it would certainly add to the Rise of the Dark Realms which is already in the list. I must agree that I'm not sure if I'll include them or not but I will definitely keep them in mind!
